I’ma take your grandma’s style

To the tune of Thrift Shop… I’m gonna knit some shawls Only got twenty stitches til my short row I – I – I’m knitting, purling to the cast-off. This is fucking awesome. Admittedly, many of my lifestyle choices are pretty “grandma-ly”. I enjoy sitting in my rocking chair…

Mary Mary knit cardigan with cat face buttons

YOU GUYS. I KNIT A WHOLE SWEATER. No, really, I did. And I didn’t frog it immediately afterwards. Pretty exciting. Sounds weird that I have been knitting for over a decade but have never completed a sweater to a truly satisfactory level. UNTIL NOW (kind of). Meet Mary Mary,…

Pink Sparkle Eyelet Cowl

The pink sparkle eyelet cowl & my awesome mirror portraiture. 😉 Scott was totally aware and very happy to be part of this composition. I made this cowl for a friend over the summer. Something light and adorable that I knew she would love & be able to use…

Sweet Dreams for Maeve

I cannot wait to welcome into the world my friend’s child in February! I have been eying this chevron baby blanket pattern from the Purl Bee for awhile. It looked a little daunting just because of the amount of counting involved. I am the sort of knitter that prefers…
